Say What?

Links found around and about those interwebby things.

  1. Of Mr Obama and Mr Trump.
  2. Social or geographical structures and people living in them.
  3. Cute and effective, which probably means Roger Goddell wasn’t involved, heh.
  4. Not held back by Star Trek (bad) doctrine.
  5. Yah think?
  6. So the clerk arrest is “bad optics” … speaking of which
  7. A drone meets its match.
  8. A subtitle for the “Black Lives Matter” crowd.
  9. Or your dating methodology suffers a systematic error (like you got the age of the parchment not the text).
  10. Ms Clinton’s email problem.
  11. Cruz gets it wrong. Look if you call one side hypocritical, don’t turn around and do the “other sides” version of the same hypocritical nonsense.
  12. On the county clerk … seems to me if she wanted to do what she is doing and avoid the legal problems, she should have read more Kafka. Bureaucratic runarounds have been around a long time. In some place they are probably an art form (see Havel).

    The debate seems less about actual immigration policy and more about an ideological dispute between pure feelings and emotional based leadership and evidence driven leadership. Trump, to me, seems the perfect candidate for the GOP…which explains both why he is leading in both the polls and the conversation.

    Informally I’m finding this is wishful thinking by those who are simply always anti-SSM and will embrace anything that they think lends to their cause. My informal perusing of opinions by those who don’t follow politics obsessively is here is a person who has announced she won’t do her job so she should just be fired or she should quite. We aren’t that far away from the Great Recession where a lot of people did lose their jobs even though they were doing everything asked of them so the sympathy that might have accrued had the anti-SSM stuck to angry cake bakers is lost.

    Alas, I’d seen the term on left leaning sites. Puffington Host, League of Ordinary G., and I think Moderate Voice. Hmm. Right wingers all, … (oops) right wingers … none.

    Uhm, the term is hypocrite. Wear it with pride.

    You really like to leave your economic roots behind when it is inconvenient. So, “Sanctuary Cities” existed prior to the Obama regime? Oh, wait. They didn’t. So? Did we suddenly have problems with lots of unattached kids coming over the border after a strong signal sent by the Admin was seen and received that they’d find a place?

    They don’t exist during the Obama regime. Name me one city that an illegal alien cannot be deported from?

    Hmmmm it’s been a year. Almost.

    Quite a bit more than a year. But … I’ve decided to give it another throw. Sunday evening, I’m going to start writing again … and try to do it regularly … on a schedule. Perhaps not nightly, but 3-4 times a week. Some things need to be said, and some need to be worked out.
